Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

May 28, 2011 (in the gray morning)

in the gray morning

“The supreme test of goodness is not in the greater
but in the smaller incidents of our character and practice;
not what we are when standing in the searchlight of public scrutiny,
but when we reach the firelight flicker of our homes;
not what we are when some clarion-call rings through the air,
summoning us to fight for life and liberty,
but our attitude when we are called to sentry-duty in the gray morning,
when the watch-fire is burning low.
It is impossible to be our best at the supreme moment
if character is corroded and eaten into by daily inconsistency,
unfaithfulness, and besetting sin.”
- F.B. Meyer
